Transcript of Sustain Ability
The promise of sustainability begins
In 1965 there was no question of sustainability, because sustainability was in every action and in every thought of our ancestor. Their life and work were associated with Valdagno area that was both the source of raw material, of the workforce, and a destination of all the articles of manufacture. Therefore, our companys work contributed to maintaining the wealth of the region.
We have always respected the timeof nature, to get the
best from it.
There were no toxic varnishes or adhesives. When the company Zordan Attilio Falegname was founded, the furniture was made of solid wood and finished with beeswax or linseed oil. The workshop was heated by burning the off cuts of wood. The production process hadto respect the time determined by the properties of material in use, and if anywork was not ready in time, the workersoffered to the customers their ownfurniture. Moreover, when finally the cabinet was ready, it was deliveredcovered with pieces of cloth reused severaltimes.
